Mcclain on 610 just said Adibi is now at 243 lbs. That is a lot of weight to put on for someone who was in the 220's last yr. I hope he doesn't lose the speed. They said he was flying around the field. Let's hope its a legitimate weight gain

Diles on the Other hand is checking in at 237 lbs and has lost a step according to McClain.

Awesome.......I loved Adibi last year "when healthy" he looked like the best lb on the field (since DeMeco looked banged up all season). The added weight gain should help him STAY HEALTHY and on the field this season.

Also, Adibi may lose some of that newly added weight as he goes through training camp and the first part of the season, especially since he is still so young. If he loses five pounds, he would weigh 238, only one pound more than Diles.

That only seems logical since he did break his leg. I imagine it will take a lil' bit to get his football legs back underneath him.

I hope bringing the pain for the opposition comes with bringing the pounds.

I've been there. It's a mental thing at this point.

You're a little tentative because you're afraid that if you go full out you might get hurt again. A big ol' cut block from Leach is just the thing he needs. That first heavy shot to the leg should get his head on straight.

Take the hit, realize you're okay, and then move on.

You're exactly right. I remember coming back from my ACL surgery. Physically I felt fine, but mentally it was hard to let go. Plus, it takes a while to get that confidence back - at least two years.

These two should really push each other. Both got a taste of starter-dom. Now the race is on to see who will get to continue it.

Wow, well he healed an additional ten percent in a day or two because just a day or two on HT.com he said he was around 90%.

I read somewhere that he said he was 100% as in he could put weight on it, cut, run, etc. But the endurance he was used to hadn't returned. The muscle was still getting tired sooner than he thought it should.

I hope Adibi is as far away from pain as possible. We need him on the field and hopefully the bulk won't affect his game the way it did to Ryans last year. I mean with Cushing on board I would think adding size at LB has already been taken care of.

So what of June? Not even mentioned as the competition for this spot?

BigBull17
05-28-2009, 07:51 AM
I think its a good thing. 220, explosive or not, is way to small for LB's. As long as he didn't do a Twinkie weight gain program. If he comes in at 240 and isn't a stiff, he'll be the starter, with Diles providing excellent depth.

BTW, Brown looked lean and mean last night. Also, Casey is a big mofo. If he is a hard worker, I see no reason he won't be a decent blocker. Just solid.

He said that he felt 100%, but since the doctors say he is 90% he'll go with it.

For now, I'm calling bull-butter on McLame's numbers. I do think he gained weight, just not as much as he says.

I might be wrong, but I'll wait until I hear it from a reputable source.

Diles losing a step....:rolleyes:...well it was his 1st or 2nd practice back. WTH did you expect McBlob?

He will need all the OTAs, TC, preseason and possibly the beginning of the season to max his potential and confidence.

I agree, Cloak. Especially with the extent of his injury. If he continues to train on his own, I think he can be ready by TC. I think his confidence level will be the determining factor.

Yeah, but if Adibi actually did put on 23 pounds over the off season, that is a substantial increase to his overall mass. That much of an increase might be especially difficult for Adibi to sustain.

I avoid avoirdupois discussions until I can see the guys run around in camp. Maybe longer.

FWIW McClain stated the weights of the LBs on one of his Chron.com interviews with Anna Megan.

Adibi is indeed 243
DeMeco is a stout 248
Diles is 237
Cushing is a whopping 262 and says he played at around 259 at SC, that guy is a load and a half

Also of interest Anthony Hill is 6 foot 6' 269 and McClain said they would like him to play around 275.

I'll take it when I can get it, almost impossible to get accurate weights during the season, not like the website really updates that stuff.

I think Curly Culp played at 268 on the nose...back in the day. He was a dominant player at that weight too (just thinking outloud). What did SC list Cushing at last season and I wonder how well he moves at 260-something as opposed to 240-something (at the combine).

If Cushing is the player we think and makes a decent impact as a rookie, I really like the way this LB crew stacks up. This should (knocks on wood) be our best LB crew in the Texans history. I would think Adibi, Ryans, and Cushing are the likely starters with Diles, Bentley, and June as the likely reserves. That's very good at the top with pretty impressive depth compared to some of the chaff we have had around here.

I dunno, but I thought we wanted to get faster and more athletic, not slower and fatter ?

I think that the plan may have been for them to start off with a little extra baggage so that by time the season starts they will be nice and solid and would have lost a little weight...

Lets say Cushing, Demeco and Adibi lose about 5-7lbs each that puts Adibi at 235-238ish - Demeco at about 240 - 243 ish...and Cushing at 255 to 258ish...

Those are good numbers to me... I'd prefer 255 as the upper limit for Cushing though!

Hill, I'm still debating myself whether he should lose or gain weight.
If he can play leaner, I can see a more mobile guy (possibly), able to move his feet a little better.
Right now, he gets beat a bit too often on the edges.
I wonder how he's gonna block those fast 3-4 OLBs with the extra bulk.

SC had him listed at 255 and in the interview McClain actually mentioned that the coaches were a bit surprised at Cushing's weight because he was 243-245 at the combine. He said he dropped down to improve his quickness for the drills there so lets hope he doesn't lose much. I was surprised to see him so light at the combine though so this is definitely closer to what he is used to playing at.

I'm all for stopping the run by any means necessary, not sure if the extra weight will actually have that effect but I guess we will find out soon enough.

I think its good for the guy to add a few pounds. He looked like a safety lined up at LB last year. I guess we'll see how it works out once the games start.

usually the offseason conditioning program takes care of any excess weight...

Hopefully Cushing's size can offset the lack of bulk in the interior DL and help us add some run stopping ability.

http://assets.houstontexans.com/uploads/multimedia/stills/thumbs/3202.jpg

I was skeptical about all the weight but at least judging from that picture he certainly looks a lot more jacked than last season. For reference here is a pic from last year:

http://assets.houstontexans.com/uploads/photo/player/9402.jpg

He definitely looks like he has added quite a bit of muscle bulk, hopefully it keeps him healthy and he retains his athleticism. I really like him for our weakside spot, can't wait to see our linebackers in action this season, it is going to be night and day compared to previous years.

I noticed that as well. I think it's somewhat common for players to get bigger in their second season because they are able to go through the off season programs instead of training for the combine.

This. College off seasons are pretty good, but NFL off seasons are that much better. As long as he can carry the weight he'll be ok. He was WAY too small last year.

BTW, he looks bigger with out pads on then this year than he looked with pads on last year.

If Adibi is able to leverage this weight and stay on the field, without injury and momentary lapses of reason, we will have a heck of a LB crew.

Kubiak said on 610 that Adibi actually played at 213 against Cleveland. Now he's 235-240 I believe.

I was listening to McClain on www.sportsradio610.com and in the very end of the part 1 segment he says that he doesn't see Cushing getting on the field on 3rd downs because of Adibi. Given, this is John McClain, but I thought it was noteworthy.

oh, and in part 2 he admits he doesn't know anything about assessing talent in regards to offensive line among others.

Wow, well he healed an additional ten percent in a day or two because just a day or two on HT.com he said he was around 90%.
I heard him on Texans.HT and he did say 90% so, that means he is probably 70%. I like Diles but he has to be 120% to beat out a bigger and more athletic Adibi. The Linebacking corps seems to have the most competition right now. Adibi must have his mama cooking for him now...lol.
